175. Eye Hath Not Seen

1 Beyond our dearest dreams of joy,
A fairer vision glows,
We see by faith that home of bliss
Our Father’s love bestows.

Eye hath not seen,
Ear hath not heard,
Neither hath it entered into the heart of man,
The things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

2 There toil and grief are never known,
Nor sorrow’s bitter tear;
No pain nor death can enter there,
The future holds no fear. [Refrain]

3 The sweetest music earth has known,
The faintest type must be
Of songs that float from angel choirs
Across the crystal sea. [Refrain]

4 Our music thrills with hidden tears,
Celestial songs are glad;
The harmony of golden harps
Holds not a cadence sad. [Refrain]

5 Eternal glories, ever new,
Sweep o’er that region blest;
And he is true who promised us
This land of joy and rest. [Refrain]
